Rich Tallerico’s passion for cars was sparked at a young age when he became interested learning about automotive repairs. Rich has been involved in the car business ever since!

In 1961, Rich started selling cars and stepped into management. Then in October of 1976, Rich purchased an auto dealership and established Four Flags Motors. A strong service department and staff of dedicated longtime employees have contributed to the success of Four Flags Motors. Their sales staff has over 32 years of experience satisfying their customers’ needs in the Edwardsville and Glen Carbon communities. Satisfied customers, frequent repeat business, referrals and a focus on local customers have been the keys to Four Flag’s success.

Four Flags Motors has been at the same location since Rich opened its doors 33 years ago. Although the roads leading to Four Flags have changed almost as much as the vehicles themselves, some of the greatest impact has come from involving more family members. Four Flags Motors is truly a family-owned, family-run, and family-friendly business. All of Rich’s four sons work at Four Flags, and the close-knit family atmosphere is evident when customers walk through the doors.

Four Flags Motors has been a Chamber member for 29 years, with Rich serving eight years on the Board of Directors. Four Flags is a proud sponsor of the Chamber’s Athena Award and has supported the Chamber through a variety of other sponsorships, including car donations for Hole in One winners at the Chamber’s annual Golf Challenge.

Four Flags is also actively involved with the Edwardsville and Glen Carbon communities, giving back through their Chamber membership and donations to the YMCA.

Four Flags Motors is located at 2901 South State Route 159 in Glen Carbon, IL. For more information, please call them at 618.656.6340 or visit them online at
